- I tried the 2008 during wine tour in Bordeaux
- Dark, opaque gem. Dark currants, graphite, earth, licorice, violet, oaky smoke, vanilla, hint of herb, powerful, laser sharp, brilliant. Full bodied, powerful, wow, beautiful dark fruits, burnt leather, plum, mushroom. Pronounced tannins, but very fine, chewy and silky. Deliciously long finish, went excellently well with the steak meal!
- Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2002. A real delight !
